Why Batwoman Is a Great Fit for The CW’s Arrowverse

     July 20, 2018


The CW has finally decided to dip their toes into the nefarious, bleak world of Gotham City by introducing Kate Kane, a.k.a. Batwoman, into their roster of DC heroes. I wrote an article a while back detailing why it could be a great idea to add Batman to the gallery of supers that are currently bouncing around the CW — especially now that we know he’s already part of that universe —  and while Kate may seem to some like a consolation prize, she is in fact a much better addition than her wealthy orphaned cousin. Despite the costume, the “Bat” moniker, a lack of superpowers, and living in Gotham City, there are actually a ton of differences between Kane from Bruce Wayne. For one thing, Kate’s father is alive! (That’s a low blow, I know). But there’s more! Below, we’ll dive into how Kate Kane first donned the mantle of the Bat, her background, and why she will make a great addition to the DCTV lineup of heroes.
